The Specter is a very powerful and very specialized ship that belongs to the Darksider known as Sivter. It was custom-built at the Corvella Shipyards to suit Sivter’s needs and as such focuses mostly on stealth and speed.
Until acquiring the Specter, Sivter would often move around the galaxy by sneaking aboard other ships. He was also not above twisting the mind of a ship owner and turning them into his personal slave if he found a particular ship worthwhile. It wouldn’t be until the events surrounding Chisas that Sivter would find the need to get his own ship.
While still a part of the Cult of Dragon Masque, Sivter secretly sliced an order for the Specter into Corvella’s database during a raid. Like so many of Sivter’s acquisitions, he would later return and steal the ship right from underneath Corvella’s noses without paying a single credit.
The Specter is designed for flight as opposed to fight. It can quickly reach speeds on par with some of the fastest starfighters. For offense it only has a single quad laser cannon and a concussion missile launcher, both forward mounted to clear a path for the Specter should it need to escape. The ship is also treated with a rare substance known as stygian-triprismatic polymer that makes it nearly impossible to detect through sensors. A state-of-the-art electronics package helps the Specter to jam the systems of enemy ships as well as to slice into other computer systems to allow the ship to pass through guarded territories unnoticed.
The Specter has served its master well since its creation and Sivter shows no sign of replacing it anytime soon. It is the perfect compliment to Sivter’s sneaky and manipulative ways.
